Mods - I'm writing this in Meta because the site is limiting me from writing out my full request. Please re-review my answer to this question.: First Arduino Uno - Immediate Problems
A mod wrote "It is a question eliciting further information." Actually, it is a full answer. I pointed out some missing information that seemed - and was, in fact - relevant, AND I went on to offer the correct solution, as stated by the OP!: to load the missing drivers, which I had also located. I believe this is an/the appropriate answer. So did the OP as he stated in a followup comment. With the OP stating it solved his problem, how is this not an answer?!
You've asked me to review my answer, my flag, and the moderators' denial, and I have done so. Now I am asking you - several of you, please - to review all of the foregoing, and tell me why an answer, accepted in writing by the OP - still deserves to be demoted.
I am asking you restore restore my answer. It deserves a place next to other answers, and it/I deserves an opportunity to be upvoted and/or selected, just as does any other answer that solves a problem does.
On a site with the standing of Stack Exchange, please don't tell me that moderation is considered mistake-proof, is final, and may not be peer-reviewed. Without any intention of blowing my own horn, I ask you to review the all-time standings; I didn't just wander in here yesterday. Your users - my peers - apparently feel that I add some value here. In this case, the OP has stated so, too.
I believe this disagreement deserves an honest and fair review by both sides. I have thoroughly reviewed my contribution and I stand by it for all of the foregoing reasons. I am asking for a similar honest and thorough review of the facts by the moderation team.
